I've been a very bad Blogger!!!!

Helloooooo!!!

Yip..... exactly what the Title says..........

I have been a VERY BAD Blogger!!!

Things have been very chaotic for a while and unfortunately blogging has not fallen into my list of priorities!!!

We have been busy though........

Saving Butterflies.......




Stitching...... time permitting....




Travelling to Africa........


Admiring beautiful sunsets.......




 Planning the next creative item......





Travelling to Pisa and Tuscany for Martial Arts World Championships!!!!


Yip........ I've been VERY busy!!!!!

And now...... Christmas is just around the corner....... 16 Days away in fact!!!!!!

I can not wait!!!!  It will give me time to step back for a moment, take a deep breath and reflect on everything that we have done over this last year! (And hopefully give me a chance to update you all, as I've given you some snippets and I know if you are anything like me, you want to know more!!!!)

Hopefully I will see you soon over the next couple of weeks with LOTS of updates!!!

Until then....... thanks for stopping by :)

I'm Back!!!!

Hellooooooooo Everyone!!!

Sorry I have been AWOL, but things got kind of hectic around here for a while!!!

Needless to say, they are still hectic, but hopefully more stable, and I should hopefully be back to updating my blog, which I have to say I have missed dearly!!!

For now a gorgeous African Sunset for you all to admire......

 
There will be more about this and other things that I have been doing whilst I have been away.
 
So until next time.......
 
See you soon!

A little bit of this and that!

Hellooooooo!

I hope you are having a brilliant week so far.....

Well, I have been having a play with various bits and pieces....

I have some green yarn, which has been sitting looking at me for quite a while, and I could not think what to do with it, as I do not have a lot of it, so I decided I would make a very simple straight forward scarf.....



Nothing tricky, just simple stocking stitch and garter stitch, so that I don't have to think about what I am doing!!!

I love the way the green shades change hues, and the simplicity of it all.  It is nice to create something that does not have a deadline to meet, or complicated stitches to concentrate on, it can be picked up when I have the urge to do some of it, or it can sit and patiently wait for me..... 

I have also been experimenting with making little brooches, and I came up with this.....


It did turn out a bit bigger than I was thinking, but I do like it!!!  I just need to get a few bits and pieces to finish it off, so that I can attach it to where ever I please!!!

Well, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend....
